I read the sad news last night on a couple of Facebook groups that John Foust, aka Honest John of Honest John's Caddy Corner has passed away.  As a fellow parts seller I had talked to him way back and immediately connected with him as a very down to earth likeable guy that had Cadillac in his blood and someone that I would meet several times at Grand National and someone I considered my friend.  He was one of those guys that you could sit down with after the GN events and just chat with for hours, or someone when they called you eagerly took their call to hear his friendly voice. We would sometimes call each other looking for parts for our customers, but always ended up in these lengthy conversations.   It appeared that John was like that with EVERYBODY! He was just the salt of the earth easy going guy that loved being part of the Cadillac Community and will be greatly missed. 
 
For those that did not know John or some of his many endeavors, here is a copy of his write-up when he won the Cadillac & LaSalle Club 2019 International Activity Award:

Sounds like a very big loss to the World of Cadillacs when a man of this caliber and knowledge passes away 

It cannot be to long into the future that those who experienced our year Cadillacs when new and the world as it was then are no longer available to be consulted as there advanced age will be eliminating them one at a time 

 Mr John Foust — R.I. P. ! — and thank you for your life of Cadillac passion  and the help you have given this community in your time

Caddy members, I’m upgrading my 64 2-door coupe deville.

motor guy lost my block (machine shop went under) so I’m replacing motor & tranny with LS conversion. I have motor parts (other than block) for 429, rebuilt transmission, converter, and too many other motor parts not needed with fully dressed LS going in.

Email me (Tom.reichenberger@ipsper.com) or call me (210-739-4854) if you’re interested…..I live in San Antonio, TX.

thanks, TX…

While working on my trunk lock on 64 Cadillac, I mistakenly closed the locking mechanism while the trunk was open.  Is there an easy way to manually release the lock back to the open position?

Thanks.

Fuel Pump Failure

Posted by Jon Shields on August 6, 2022 at 6:48am 4 Comments

Hello,

I'm located in Melbourne, Australia and my 64 sedan de ville is stuck in the garage due to failed mechanical fuel pump. The first after market mechanical fuel pump lasted a few years before it failed & left me stranded 5 hours from home. A hire car and tow got us home. On inspection, I noticed a valve not seated within the housing. I was optimistic, pressed it into place and assumed the pump was good to go. But alas, no. From what I can now determine, the diaphragm pushrod…
